We haven't had a new blessing at the end of service for quite some time. I'm assured one is coming soon. In the meantime, the Prayer of Apostleship was one that touched me this week:
God, we know that at its heart every seed holds the mystery of life, waiting only for earth, sun and rain to bring it into the light. So too in the heart of every person life waits, and each new day contains all the beauty and grace we need to live the life to which you call us. Give us faith to see you at work deep in one another's hearts. Give us courage as we wait for new life to push through. Give us joy as we see you at work everywhere.
